My wife and I had dinner and some beers at Beaver Street Brewery while in Flagstaff earlier this week.

It feels like more of a restaurant than a brewery, with a big dining room. Definitely has a lived-in feel, lots of families dining here. They had 8 beers on tap during my visit, plus a shandy made with their lager. Pretty standard styles: IPA, lager, red, stout, a couple raspberry beers. The Conductor IPA was decent enough but rather plain; nothing special. The oatmeal stout a little better but not especially notable. I had the burger and fried Brussels sprouts; the sprouts were the star and very tasty. My wife had the chili, which was delicious. Service was friendly and reasonably prompt. A decent place to get dinner but not really a beer destination.

Nondirscipt downtown building with free 2 hour parking. Large dining area with bar on right that seats about 15. 12 beers on tap, the one I had was ok. Service was oblivious & no wi-fi. I guess next time I pay to park elsewhere. Returned 4/2021 for a Flagstaff brewery passport and the beer, Midnight Black IPA was very nice.

In Flagstaff for a professional meeting and go there with an old friend and my wife. We had been there on a previous trip through Flagstaff, so a bit of nostalgia points. A great place for beer and pizza, but there are many other things on the menu. Had their flagship IPA and their red IPA (one of my favorite styles). A good time was had by all and I recommend it.

Stopped in for a pint to kill a little time before checking into our hotel that was basically across the street. This place felt more like a restaurant with a large bar than a brewery. Although not stated on the menu, many of their offerings were from Lumberyard Brewing, which made things a bit confusing. Service was fine, but felt like it could get hectic if the place was any more busy. I'd probably go back after checking out the other breweries in the area, or if I was going to eat a meal.

Came here while visiting Flagstaff, and had a great time! Great food and great service , affordable opportunities to try all their brews , and overall I really enjoyed it. A little bit more of a local restaurant vibe than a brewery vibe, but that can be expected of a microbrewery that is doubling as a full service restaurant. I recommend stopping by!

Must try their Sweet Potato fry's! They also have a fairly good meatloaf.

We summer in Flagstaff from Phoenix.

Another great spot, except for coffee, is across the street at Macy's.

A point so history - - The building that Beaver Street Brewery is located in used to be a neighborhood grocery market.

Lastly, if you are a fan of Mexican breakfasts, and know Chilequiles, then you absolutely must, And I mean absolutely must, go to MartAnnes. It will change your life.

Cool place located in the downtown Flagstaff area. James our server did an awesome job .

Beer selection on tap was limited to Lumberjack offerings. Did not ask about the bottle selection. Nothing noted on the menu.

The Beaver St burger was very tasty, although came as medium rare rather than medium as ordered. The missus order the pretzel w/cream cheese and spicy mustard sauces. She wasn't over-thrilled. The bread pudding w/chocolate sauce was delicious!

Good value for the money and would return AFTER trying the other brewpubs in town.

Located just across the main Hwy from downtown Flagstaff, this is a medium sized place with a pretty standard brewpub atmosphere. They are apparently related to Lumberyard brewing company down the street and seem to have much of the same beer selection. This means they have some of the best beer in the area and everything that I had at Beaver Street was good.

Service was good enough, our bartender seemed to be under training but the place was mostly empty so everything worked out fine there. The beer selection was good with a larger selection than one would expect to find at most well established brewpubs and they even had some of their limited release beers available in bottles to take home.

I've made two visits to Beaver Street over the course of ~10 years. The first was a nightcap for a single pint. This time around, I stopped in with my wife and 10-month-old daughter after a day at the Grand Canyon (around 4:30 on a Wednesday).

I ordered half beers of...

Helles Bock
Octoberfest Marzen - outstanding, probably the best I've had
Hop Harvest which was not as "syrupy" as others I've had.

My wife had the raspberry ale which we both enjoyed.

We had an appetizer of sweet potato fries and one of the pizzas. The food was good.

They are a sister brewery to Lumberyard which we visited the next night. If I had to pick one, I'd go with Lumberyard as they had a lot of the same beers and more beers which were more interesting and more up my alley.

Stopped at the Beaver St. Brewery on our way to the Grand Canyone from Scottsdale, good half way point. It was the start to a nice little beer tour of flagstaff, with another stop at the Lumberyard, Beaver St.'s sister production brewery down the street.

We entered from the side parking lot side; setup from this entrance is the bar to your right with about 15 seats and the dining room to the front and left and kitchen to the far left. Brewery operations are setup behind the bar to the right from this entrance. One offputing feature is the carpeted floors, not exactly ideal for an establishment that serves mass amounts of liquids. Anyway, the food and beer far outweight this downside.

I think we were the first customers of the day, at just before noon, which made it a bit subdued but it warmed up as the lunchtime crowd filled in.

Quality of the serving of food and beer was well worth noting. Beers were served in appropriate glassware and the food was all done well with generous portions.

Service was great, very knowledgeable of the beer selection with some good suggestions for pairings.

Beer selection was great, about 10 or so on draft. I tried the Helles Bock which was great presentation of this style. Other beers to note were the pale ale, IPA, and stout.

Food was great, everyone of the 6 of us enjoyed our meals. The brewer's wurst plate is a feature to take note of.

Very good value, reasonable beer and food prices make this a great experience.

I've been a fan of this joint since before I could drink.

The food is great. They rock a woodfired pizza oven and make great personal pies. Also, if you're really hungry, grab the brewer's platter... It's wurst heaven.

Beer wise it's pretty decent. I have had two different IPAs there... both being ok. The R&R stout is tasty. Also had a tripel there that wasn't bad. The Railhead Red is ok too.

Not really a knock your socks of beer experience, but overall a great place to dine and drink.

Outfitted to look like a train station it sort of fails at that. It's too nice inside to be a train station. There's a big pot belly wood-burning stove near the front where you can sit and warm up (if need be) while waiting to be seated.

The beers and specials are well-noted throughout the restaurant so you don't even need to have your waitperson explain them to you.

The food is really good. Their signature burger is really tasty and their soft pretzels make for great appetizers. Their sandwiches are also inventive and tasty and they are kid-friendly with a decent menu for them. The kitchen is pretty open so you can look into pretty easily. That kind of confidence in their food prep is impressive.

The beer is really good. The Hop Shot IPA and the R&R Oatmeal Stout were my favorites, but the Hefeweizen was a little lacking as I have found all hefeweizens in the Western US to be.

They say that their cobbler is "divine" or "awesome" depending on which menu board you read, but the one I had (peach-blueberry) was not. The topping was mealy and the blueberries overpowered the peaches entirely. I love blueberries but I had expected a balance with the peaches and got none.

Overall a great experience for a great price. Two adults, two kids and a baby...three beers, one appetizer, two kids meals, two entrees, two kids desserts and one adult dessert all for under $90, including a good tip.

We stopped here on our first night in Flagstaff after visiting the Grand Canyon. This place was a short walk from our hotel in old downtown. The selection here was good. I had the Hopshot IPA and their Oatmeal Stout and my Wife had the Big Rapid Red and their Hefeweizen. All were solid beers and quite tasty. The IPA was actually comparable to some of the west-coast IPA's I have had which was somewhat surprising.

It was somewhat crowded when we arrived but a table opened up quickly. Service was attentive and friendly. The menu was quite extensive but we both ended up selecting one of Woodfired Pizza's. I had the three sausage and Wife had the Beaver Street. Both were delicious.

This was quite a nice place to have a few beers and eat some quality food. I would definitely recommend it to others passing through town.

On our little cross country trip, we stopped at Beaver Street Brewery in Flagstaff. I liked the atmosphere in there. It was nice. I had a Hopshot IPA which was really good and I tried my wife's Brambleberry Brew which was pretty good too. The food was awesome. We all had different pizzas and the one I had was awesome. I would love to go back there next time I am in Flagstaff but it probably won't be for a while. The IPA was very good and so wa the Brambleberry Brew. I picked up a tshirt there too which they only had in white but it was still a cool tshirt.

Mothers day 2010. My wife and I had spent the day on the Grand Canyon Railway (Williams to the South Rim and back) and the shuttle bus dropped us off at the AmTrack station, 50 meters from here. Our hotel was just past the brewery and as we hadn't made it in here yet, we stopped off for our tea.

The place is more restuarant than a bar, although the brewing equipment is in full view if you get given a seat towards the windows, as we were. There were a couple of people sitting at the bar, so food isn't a must. The place was almost full, mothers being treated to a night off from cooking, families enjoying the evening together, nice, but annoying when you want a quiet pint and a pizza, we should have sat at the bar!

The place is open plan with the pizza ovens to your left on entering, the bar and brewing equipment to the right, semi-rustic-woody-homely look to it as a whole.

The waiting staff were fine and friendly, the pizza's too big, we needed doggy bags. Couldn't get excited about their beers though, nothing wrong with them, but nothing stood out about them either. The Brew and Cue part appeared completely empty (21.00 on a May Sunday), so after or meal we headed back to our motel beds via the fridge which I'd stashed some goodies into.

I made it here about 6ish on a Tuesday. The place wasn't full but they were filling up after I arrived. I sat at the bar, it has about 15 seats. Large open room you can see the kitchen all seating and bar from almost anywhere. The brewing equipment is behind the bar visible through glass.
Bartendress was very attractive and on top of her job. Describing beers as a beer drinker would describe them. I had their Kolsch and IPA. Kolsch was pretty much average but the IPA blew me away.
Didn't try food on this visit, I had already eaten over at Flagstaff brewing. I think next time I will eat here, their food looks better.
If I found myself in this city with only time to hit one place this would be my choice.

Really enjoyed this brewery. Very close to the place we were staying. Ended up closing the place and going next door to the pool hall/ bar attached called Brews and Cues. Our bartender was great. True, we were the only ones in the place on a Sunday night, but, he was attentive to our needs. Let us sample. Blended a couple of beers for us also. Did I mention that we closed the other side as well. Beers were decent. Had one or two really good ones. What we really enjoyed was a fruit beer combined with the stout. I would recommend this place.

Stopped in here on the way back from visiting the Grand Canyon and must say that I was pleasantly surprised! The atmosphere was typical pub feel, lots of rustic wood, some memorabilia lining the walls and a nice big open feel. We opted to eat out back on their patio which was pretty great except for one couple who insisted on smoking throughout the duration of our meal. I love OR and the fact that you can't smoke anywhere you please! Tough to smell the aromas of a nice beer with smoke filling and burning my nostrils. Anyway, the quality of the beers was solid, I had a sampler and enjoyed them all and then ordered a pint of the ipa on tap and it was delish. The service was pretty attentive and the selection of food and beer was great. I chose a wood fired pizza and it was one of the best pizzas i've ever had at a pub, crispy crust and fresh toppings, very nice! Overall the experience was great and I will be sure to stop in here the next time I'm in the area. Very cool vibe, good food, and solid beer!

This place was recommended as the must stop place in town for good food and beer. The place was quite crowded for a mid-week evening dinner and we got on of the last tables in the place. There is a nice outdoor seating area with picnic tables if you prefer some fresh air. The bar is large, overlooks some brewery equipment, and can seat about 15. An open kitchen shows the wood burning stove for pizzas and plenty of cooks working the area. I have to admit I have never seen so many waiters / waitresses in an establishment which provided quick and friendly service despite the crowds.

Beer wise there were 6 beers available, Hotshot IPA, Lumberjack Lager, Belgian Pale Ale, Railhead red, Stout, and a Berry flavored wheat beer. The beers were of good quality and were tasty.

Food was terrific as the appetizers and dinners were flavorful and well prepared. This is not a gourmet restaurant, but high end pub food.

Upon leaving I stopped by the large merchandise section to pick up a tee shirt. If I had only one place to stop in Flagstaff, this place is the one to select.
